Febuary 14th, Capricorn
Type of Trainer:
Luka is partial to Dark type pokemon.
Least Favorite Type:
Luka dislikes Bugs.
On first impressions he comes off as fairly deadpan with a darker mindset. While his expression rarely changes he generally has a positive outlook on life, trusting in the future that his cards have shown him. It can be hard to tell when he is joking or being friendly, since most words are delivered in the same monotone, regardless of the situation.
He is not sure what town he was born in, or what region for that matter. His family traveled quite a lot. But it can be hard raising a kid on the road. Shortly after his third birthday he was shoved off on his grandparents to raise in Dead Man's Playground. They were hard people, but they were good to their kin. His Gran taught him how to read palms, cards and several other methods of scry into the future. Growing up in such a hard place he learned to hide his emotions from an early age. The weak made easy targets after all.
His parents would visit every year or so, depending if they were in the area. He looked forward to their visits, they would always bring with them the stories about their travels, sparking his own desire for adventure.
But it was not in his cards, at least not yet. Luka had gone from being the one cared for to taking care of his ailing grandparents as their health declined. They had never been rich, alway having just enough to get by. Sometimes his parents would send money home, but it was rare. It was easy to fall into the bad habits of Deadman’s Playground.
The kids he grew up with welcomed him into their gang. He had a knack for picking out fat marks and scowl could be quite intimidating. They lived well for a while, he brought home enough money to make sure his family was comfortable as he did his best not to think about the people he hurt in the process.
After Luka lost them, at 14 and 15, he started to drift away from that way of life. He hated it, taking from others for their own personal gain. But they were his friends, his second family. He couldn’t just leave them. For better or worse fate decided to make his choice for him.
His friends had gone out on a bust he had advised against, and didn’t come back. They had been caught and arrested, leaving only him and a few others free. Luka took it as a sign that he should leave that world behind him. The idea of being a pokemon trainer and traveling the world had always appealed to him, and he no longer had anything stopping him from pursuing that dream.
-His face is nearly always in a scowl regardless of what kind of mood he is in.
-He has a bad case of wanderlust, rarely staying in one place for very long.
-His wardrobe contains more scarves than any sane persons should.
-He hasn’t cut all ties with his old life, and still keeps in contact with a few of his friends.
-Luka is decent at slight of hand, often using it during readings to impress, and sometimes falling into old habits.
-He is comfortable traveling light, not feeling the need to carry every worldly possession along with him.
-Luka himself is very indecisive, and will go along with what others choose. If pressed he will consult his cards before giving a straight answer.
